    Will have plenty of crazy facts and funny stories to tell strangers at awkward parties. I thank Mary Roach for some of the downright weird, wonderful and grim situations she put herself in in order to write this book! Loved it!
  • The best book I've read

    By DudettePuddin
    As a current undergraduate in the UK studying Anatomy and Human Biology with weekly cadaver dissections, this book brought to life the importance of body donation and also revealed the many unknown and hidden uses which are widely controversial. This book definitely makes you reflect but I hope it does unto others as it did to me: solidify the idea that body donation is necessary and the best gift you can give to future generations! 5* and will be re-reading again and again.
